The temperatures have dropped and heavy layers have become essentials in our winter wardrobes. For those of us who live in cooler climates, knitwear is a lasting staple for the cold snap. From cable knit jumpers to oversized cardigans, who says you can’t keep warm in style.

Knitwear is a dream to style and luckily there are plenty of gorgeous options on the high street to choose from this season.

If you’re looking to make a statement, then prints will work best. This floral jacquard print sweater would look great teamed with black skinnys or tucked into a A-line skirt.

If prints aren’t really your thing, then try bold block colours- red is always a good choice this time of year.

For those who can’t get rid of their favourite pieces from the summer, throwing a cardigan over an outfit and layering it is a great way to make use of last season’s dresses and t-shirts.

Another style which has stood the test of time is the roll neck. It’s a perfect for a frosty morning and also means you don’t have to wear false tan- winning!
